Have a Car Question? Ask a Mechanic Online.
I see...well I really hope your right..as far as my car only needing minor maintanence rather than a whole new engine or junking it. Just one last bit of advice please. The salesman said for me to have my car towed back to his lot so his mechanic could re-adjust whatever needs fixing...should i advise him of the information you have given me as possible problems?? I dont want to be had, by having them "fix" it temporarily and I'm assed out on the street with my children in the back seat :( What all you suggest I do before making any decisions?? like i said I just bought it "as is" for $1250 (I paid $1100. and still owe $150. including the smog check;pass). I do like the car, but just want to be safe, not sorry.
Hi JOE! I hear what your saying, but you know what, I decided to on getting most of my money back from that whacked out dealership.I paid $1100. and they gave me back $900. Yeah my dad ended up buying a 2000 Jeep Cherokee for $5000. and he's gonna let me pay him back over time! But this car is niice and runs smooth for it's year. AND NO LEAKS! I guess after seeing me go through all that mess with the TROOPER, he felt he had to help me out! SO I'M HAPPY. My dad says I did good by getting most of my money back, and that it was a hard lesson to learn! YES IT WAS...You know they showed me a part that was damaged and all the oil leaking everywhere it ruined the starter and a lotta areas...I'm just glad I'm safe and secure, and most of all worry free.
I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX the help and insight you've given me. Thanks SO much!
